Description
An insightful look at alienation in the modern world from the New York Times -bestselling author of The Art of Loving and Escape from Freedom . Social psychologist Erich Fromm observed the spread of alienation in the 1960s, arguing that humans who were once dynamic, creative beings were reduced to fixating on TV screens, emotionally paralyzed by anxieties over threats like nuclear war. Though we may stare at different devices and worry about other dangers today, his insights are as useful as ever, and allow us to gain perspective on the human condition. A collection of his writings on "New Humanism" and the need to reclaim our happiness and peace of mind, this is a thoughtful, fascinating overview of the past that shaped us, and the philosophies and practices that can ensure a better future, both for ourselves and for the world at large. Included are reflections on thinkers from Karl Marx to medieval Catholic mystic Meister Eckhart, as "Fromm's large, keen mind and attractive, likable voice [strive] for heart as he asks himself the hardest questions of his day" ( Kirkus Reviews ). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate.

display_descriptionErich Fromm's insightful work on the modern human condition, and how to break free of its bonds In the 1960s, renowned social psychologist Erich Fromm argued that people were becoming increasingly alienated. No longer were we dynamic, constantly creative beings. Instead, he observed, we were becoming fixated on things like television, while the specter of nuclear war remained a consistent worry. On Being Human gathers several of Fromm's writings on the "New Humanism" he proposed. In addition, the book presents a most interesting chapter on "Having" and "Being" according to Master Eckhart and Karl Marx that originally was written to be included in To Have or To Be? This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate.
